Chapter five studies another case of Professor Wang in which he was involved in a bloody fight against the head of the Neighborhood Committee of Fenghuayuan, Liu Yongxiu. Although Liu did not have much power, he had powerful backing from local governments. Responding to Wang’s accusations that he had embezzled a large sum of public money belonging to all residents, Liu launched a ferocious battle against Wang. After Wang began shifting his focus of charges towards the powerful mayor, the situation shifty turned unfavorable to Wang. In the local court, Liu sued Wang for slandering, resulting in Wang’s 18 month imprisonment.
